If you didn’t catch me at church this past Sunday, well, it’s because I was at Target. Given that I’m sensitive and prone to a guilty conscience, you’d think that I’d be justifying my playing hooky. Nope. Not after the comment I received a few hours later.
Today’s Comment of the Week comes from Melissa in reply to I Want A Square Piece!
It was such a pleasure meeting you and your adorable son. His sandals are the cutest! I want you to know, that you were such an inspiration and blessing to me today; a breath of fresh air. As a believer in Christ, I strongly believe that the Lord works in mysterious ways. Lately, I’ve been feeling his presence everywhere. Whether it be in a song, an individual’s testimony or on a card that you gave to me today. The bible verse was exactly what I needed to see; his timing is PERFECT. My family and I are currently going through a rough time at the moment. I strongly believe our encounter wasn’t an accident. Thank you for sharing your story today; truly up lifting. I now understand what your “square piece” tattoo truly means. God bless you, and see you in store soon.
Thank YOU for being so quick to return the encouragement! I can’t believe that you remembered my tattoo being as I don’t typically frequent that Target and can’t remember the last time that I was even there! After our encounter, as I made my way down the aisles, I felt like you might enjoy knowing the whole tattoo story and so I rummaged in my purse for my blog card. For fear of coming across as if I was trying to “sell” you on my blog, I hesitated to hunt you back down; but your joyful reception of the opportunity to read more made me feel a little less silly. Additionally, once I read your interpretation of the events that transpired and realized that the Lord, in His kindness, might have crossed our paths for a greater purpose, I truly felt like my Sunday morning had been redeemed! He indeed does love you. Having not a clue what your family is going through right now, I can only hope, pray and trust that you are in His hands and that those hands will protect, guide and provide all that you need.
And what’s life without a little spam?
Today’s spam comes from zi xiu tang capsule in reply to Jellyfish Swimming, an Incident.
I’ve some diverse mentions: To start with – what are your data? (age, %anchor%, height, and activity amount) An individual might help you clarify issues that way.
Dear zi xiu tang capsule,
Regarding your diverse mentions and my data, I’m thirty. I kinda made a big stink out of it during the month of July. If you had been paying attention, you wouldn’t have missed this. There was a concert, a photo booth… You know, the works.
As far as “%anchor%” goes, I have no idea what to say. I’m not an anchor in any sense of the literal definitions. I’m a hairstylist and a human. When I was in middle school, becoming a news anchor was a brief and fleeting dream of mine. And while I still think I’d be great at it, I’m quite content where I am.
Height? Well, I’m usually 5’7″ ’cause I’m usually in shoes.
Activity amount? Operating under the assumption that you’re modestly referring to exercise, I’m pleased to report that I never work out anymore. I hate the gym. Truly. That said, I tighten my core when I pick up my baby, I crunch my abs when he plays airplane on my knees and I park far away from storefronts and walk further to get inside (though that’s mostly because I’m terrible at parking my van). By means of nursing, I’m still averaging a daily 500 calorie burn!
Thanks for asking!
